Ron Paul's Foreign Policy
Submitted by Stephen Berry on Mon, 2011-12-19 23:08
There are things about Ron Paul that concern me.
1) He thinks it is acceptable for the states to regulate things in a way that it is not for the federal government. Theoretically this could mean a state banning marijuana.
2) He supports allowing the states to ban abortion. As much as I hate abortion I hate the banning of it even more.
3) He is a Baptist - but being religous doesn't necessarily make you an enemy of freedom. Christianity is somewhat of a pre-requisite in the US if one is to stand for President.
I know that the one which concerns many of you is his foreign policy. Many years ago I supported the invasion of Iraq. In recent times I have changed my mind, for the reasons Paul espouses. I guess my question of you is: How the hell are we going to pay for the invasion of more nations such as Iran? North Korea should surely be a candidate too as they already have a severely limited nuclear capablity. Currently the US deficit is over $1.6 trillion. How can they afford to invade another country - especially if, as you, I and Ron Paul advocate, income tax is abolished?
